I really appreciated this book. Caleb has a way of sharing his story that is respectful to all people mentioned. He shares some of the details of what it was like to struggle with his newfound faith and the tension it caused in his relationships with his parents. "When I was put in a position of having to choose either [my parents] or God, I was facing the most difficult decision of my life. Many nights I stayed up late and seriously thought about no longer following Jesus. If I did that, at least I would have my parents back. I couldn't go back, though" (125).
This book gave me a lot to think about in relation to being a Christian who wants to show love to all people. "It's time that we Christians focus on building bridges with the LGBT community rather than burn them" (59).
Caleb was challenging and honest. I recommend this book.
I received this book for WaterBrook Multnomah's Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
